Bioinformatics requires knowledge in multiple disciplines including computer science, biomedical sciences, and mathematics. Through the use of computer-related technologies, biological data is transformed and used in applications such as genetics, pharmacology, and more. The breadth of knowledge required in this field is unique, but also provides an opportunity for students in the program to be highly marketable post-graduation.
